    I worked at Rockstar Games

    Pros

    Working at a video game company is a fantastic, especially if its Rockstar Games. Help yourself to all the great Rockstar apparel and the pay is great, not to mention the company parties.

    Cons

    I've found it to be the nature of the business: Since games aren't released every month, the workload is very cyclical. At time of business, its great and satisfying, at slow times, work can become tedious.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The organization and communication between departments can be improved, although training is offered, it takes a lot of effort for it to be sponsored.

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at Rockstar Games.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through a job seeking portal. The next day I was contacted and ask to complete a technical design test in 24 hours. The technical part of the test was exceedingly easy for anyone with even a basic knowledge of game programming, while the design part was a lot more subjective. A few days after I completed the test and sent it back, with a request for feedback on the test regardless of whether I passed, I was contacted again and told that they thought I "would not make a good fit". I e-mailed them back and thanked them and again asked for feedback, but never got a response.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question on the test was to write a simple Finite State Machine for a door control AI.   View Answer
